Following the release of their developments kits, OUYA have received some feedback that is already being put it into place.
The controller for the small console is getting a small makeover following the feedback, with the introduction of a 4-point d-pad, after complaints from development kit users highlighted the inaccuracy of a disc-style pad. Also, both thumbsticks now have a rubberized grip, the touch-pad is “more precise,” and the trigger buttons were repositioned.
“The controller’s the thing. We’ve been working from the beginning to make the controller experience as honed, fast and precise as possible.
Since the release of the OUYA Dev Console last month, developers around the world have sent us a ton of emails, comments, videos and forum posts… all about our controller. A lot of the feedback underscored things we were already changing, some comments were totally new, but ALL were great to hear.”
OUYA is currently available to pre-order, with a scheduled release in April.
